This week on our podcast Monday to Monday, host Mike Boyd sits down with manager extraordinaire Doris Muñoz. This interview is special, because Muñoz embodies so much of what is amazing about the role of a manager. She runs her own management company, mija mgmt, while heading up her nonprofit Solidarity for Sanctuary. In both of these roles, Muñoz demonstrates the power that artists/managers have to create change with their work. The nonprofit has a mission “to amplify the voices of immigrant communities through music, advocacy and the arts.”
Boyd and Muñoz discuss her work with her nonprofit, her mija mgmt company (which manages bedroom pop sensation, Cuco), tips on live shows/touring and some advice for landing a record deal. It’s a hell of an episode, highlighting one of the important factors at the core of the Monday to Monday brand. In the words of Dewey Finn, “One great rock show can change the world.” Muñoz’s work embodies this ethos, demonstrating that music (and those who create it) have the power to impact the world we live in.
